How to Overcome FOMO

  1. Accept Your Status. Admit that you feel like you might be missing the next awesome thing.
  2. Realize You’re Looking at the Greatest Hits. Everyone else only shares his or her biggest hits as well. It’s also good to remember that it’s extremely easy to manipulate “reality.”
  3. Disconnect. Turn off notifications for your social apps. If there is a person in particular who sets your FOMO on fire, don’t be afraid to unfollow that person to save your sanity.
  4. Live in the Present. Make a list of all the things you wish you had time for: learning a new language, finally reading the book club selection, volunteering. 

So get out there and start living your life, and while you’re at it, practice some JOMO.
